Fine dining

We tried the tasting menu with the wine menu. All dishes packed with flavour and taste and the wine doing a fine company. Everything well presented. The two waiters were very observant bringing bread and water when ever needed. Well worth the Michelin-guide Star.

My boyfriend and I ate here on Valentine's day this year, and decided that for a special occasion we were prepared to pay the slightly high prices at this restaurant. We had the trio of steaks, the meat was absolutely wonderful and very well cooked BUT, we felt it was let down by the strange biscuit crumb that it was... More

we have visited this place a few times, once eaten in the restaurant and at the bar. The taster menu at 60€ was well worth it. The food was different and well presented! The red prawns from Denia are amazing.

The whole place is well decorated and nice. There is very little atmosphere and the staff are a bit to on your shoulder. Presentation is superb, the bread and oils are wonderful, BUT the roast suckling pig was to say the best, just a piece of pork without the wonderful mouthwatering crispy skin. Oh my god that is the best... More

We ate at the tapas restaurant twice, finding the food imaginative and tasty. There was a significant difference between midweek and Sunday however, with service pretty slow at the weekend. It is pricey, which is fine if the service and food is excellent, but with the competition in Alicante it needs to be more reliable in its offer; several groups... More

we were staying at the hotel so it was very easy to pop in for tapas at this excellent restaurant. The cocktail menu is extensive and they are made well by expert staff. The waiters know their wine list and we were recommended a local red wine that was memorable. The Iberico was delicious and the portion was generous. The... More

Lovely atmosphere, attentive staff, well presented food. You have the option of dining inside or in the covered in terrace area both are lovely. Worth a look if you are in Alicante!

This is a beautful restaurant with persian rugs on the floor and a lovely decor. The owner Maria came to our table for a nice chat. We had clams and a pumpkin lasagne to start with and the red mullet and pork rib for mains. Everything was superb, delicate aromas and very good service. The winelist was also great.

On a recent visit to ALICANTE we stumbled upon a hotel with a nice looking open restaurant on a central street. We were looking at the menu when a waitress asked if we would like to try their Michelin star restaurant inside the Hotel. We took a table in the restaurant and the waiter at our table took a good...
